Situated on the Cai Lon River in South Vietnam’s Mekong Delta, Kien An served as operating base for the U.S. and Vietnamese river forces during the Vietnam War. Developed during 1969, the base was turned over to the Vietnamese Navy in December 1970 when American forces began withdrawing from the war. ABM.
